The Gardening Guru's Web Site



The horticultural help you have been looking for is here just for the asking.  I am the Gardening Guru, here to answer your most perplexing gardening questions, and to teach you how fun and enjoyable gardening can be!  I have numerous years of experience in the horticulture field, from owning my own landscaping company, to wholesale/retail/distributor general manager of a landscape supply company, to Landscape Supervisor of an 81 acre county park, to finally Executive Director of the Reeves-Reed Arboretum in Summit, New Jersey.  I can be heard on WGHT 1500 AM, broadcasting from Wayne, New Jersey, on my weekly radio show.  I have a wealth of information to share, just ask the question.  All my life I have tried to give back as much as I have learned to others, and the web is making my giving on a slightly larger scale.  If you like this page, tell a friend and share a good thing.  Also sign up for my monthly newsletter with tips and tricks to get you through the gardening year.
